The diurnal passage was lighter this morning and on vis we had 20 Goldfinch, 130 Lesser Redpolls, 13 Woodpigeons, 83 Meadow Pipits, 3 Tree Pipits, Alba Wag, 3 Linnets, Swallow, 2 Collared Doves and a Siskin. There were very few grounded migrants other than Goldcrest, Blackcap, 4 Wheatears and a single Tree Sparrow.
We managed to ring 37 Lesser Redpolls (that's 102 over two days), Goldcrest and 3 Blackbirds. The only recapture we had was a Robin. We also controlled another Lesser Redpoll; L743076 anybody?
Ian sent me some good comparison shots of the Mealy from yesterday alongside a Lesser and I have included two below. Also thanks to Wendy for the sausage butties this morning; superb!
